Lufthansa and Joramco have struck an agreement for the MRO’s Amman facility in Jordan to perform base maintenance services for two of the carrier’s A340s. The project’s scope encompasses C check and cabin upgrades. Work on the facility is expected to get underway in January and last through February 2017.
Mr. Osama Fattaleh, CEO of Joramco, said, “We are thrilled that Lufthansa has selected Joramco to execute heavy checks on two of their A340 fleet, and we look forward to providing the carrier with continuous long-term value solutions and exceptional maintenance services”.
Lufthansa, Germany’s national airline, flies to over 100 destinations in Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, the Far East, and Asia. Besides Air Dolomiti, Eurowing, and Lufthansa Cityline, the Lufthansa Group’s subsidiaries Austrian, Brussels, and SWISS, as well as Star Alliance partners, offer additional routes and services.
JORAMCO has built a solid reputation as a leading MRO facility for the commercial aircraft industry with over 50 years of experience, serving a wide range of customers in the Middle East, Europe and South Asia. JORAMCO also provides services for aircraft from the Airbus, Boeing and Embraer fleets in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
The Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, Jordan, has five hangars that can hold up to ten aircraft. The Jordanian Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (JCARC), the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) have all certified Joramco (EASA).
